    Hello again,

    I realize that this is not a reptile, but I have the chance to work on a very old crab and wanted to see what your opinions and approaches would be.

    My instinct is to stabilize, sculpt and paint the hell out of this thing. Apparently it is over 100 and was a gift from Japan.

    Please let me know if this is a money pit or simply a long week worth of work.


    The wood piece is one square foot.
